Just gonna wing it tonight…

Let me just say…  I apologize if I ruffled a few feathers with my last post…  I honestly did not intend to upset anyone… I needed to vent and this was the only place where I THOUGHT I was safe.  I did not take into consideration those that host this blog and for that I am sorry.  I would like to apologize to my kind hosts for having to put up with the BS that they had to endure over my rant…  I will try and be more careful and take them into consideration before sending…  For those that complained, I am sorry if you cant handle the truth…

Sooooooo…  Still no sports going on.  Oh sure we have NASCAR… UFC… PGA is coming back this weekend…  BUT… as my good friend Jon Olson always likes to remind me… we want REAL sports…  NFL, MLB, NHL. NBA…  Well I say, be patient, it will all be back soon.  NBA has announced a start date of Jul 31…  NHL is getting it’s act together…  NFL is progressing as if there wont be a delay in the start of the season… as for MLB.. well… *sigh*…  lets discuss that for a moment shall we?…

This whole thing has been a shit show from the beginning…  While the other major sports appear to be moving forward, Major League Baseball finds new ways to shoot themselves in the foot with each proposal.   MLB sends a proposal to the players, the players send a counter proposal, but they cant come to an agreement…  Both sides are acting like children… this is not good for a sport that has been losing fans left and right for years, and this latest labor dispute – airing dirty laundry and talking money in public is only making us fans get turned off even more about the 2020 season.. and the more they bicker, the less likely it seems that there will even be a 2020 season.  ESPN.com has a good discussion on the whole thing at the following link:

My thoughts on the matter… the sooner they come to an agreement is better for MLB.  the longer this drags on, MLB runs the risk of losing millions of fans because we are tired of seeing both sides act like spoiled children.  get it done…  we want to see Baseball…

Ok…  short and sweet tonight…  that’s all I have to say for today… but…  if you want more than you will join me and “The Rant Pack” this Sunday night at 7pm Eastern time on FB live for “The Sports nerds” where we discuss the current state of sports in the US and Canada… (For @jongolson)
